Sue graduated from Monroe City High School and received an associates degree from Hannibal-LaGrange College.

The family moved to Wayland when Vanessa was three. Sue felt very blessed to be able to stay home and raise her children. When they entered school she went to work at Running Fox Elementary first as a teacher’s aid and then as secretary.

Sue moved to Keokuk and worked for the Daily Gate City Newspaper for 10 years as Life Style Editor. During that time she worked closely with the Keokuk Police Department and wrote a column, "Over Coffee". She received several awards in journalism and photography.

She retired in December of 2017.

Her memberships included the Wayland United Methodist Church, Keokuk Lion’s Club (former president), and Keokuk Chamber Ambassador.

Sue enjoyed journaling, "Gone With the Wind", and had a special "knack" for decorating. Every home she ever lived in looked like it belonged in a magazine. She dearly loved her grandkids and making them her special "no bake" cookies. They looked forward each year to receiving an ornament for their trees which she handpicked for each of them.
